Damon Salvatore Has a Girlfriend!

at . Comments

It's not Rose. And, sorry Delena lovers, it won't be Elena. But Damon Salvatore is getting a new girlfriend on The Vampire Diaries.

None other than Ian Somerhalder himself confirmed the spoiler this week, Tweeting the following photo of himself, Matthew Davis and guest star Dawn Olivieri, who will play reporter Andie Star. Take note of the caption:

Damon Girlfriend

Confirming that Damon will feast on this character the same way he drank from Caroline last season, Somerhalder told Zap2It:

"Damon's kind of proud of [the name]. There's a line where Alaric comes to the Salvatore house, and Andie's sort of leaving after the walk of shame, and she's obviously got a little scarf around her neck because Damon's been munching on her. Alaric is sort of blown away, and Damon goes, 'Andie Star, Action News.'"

Somerhalder refers to Andie as Damon's "beard" because the vampire will compel the journalist to act as his girlfriend in order to help him fit in around town.

But just because the relationship is phony doesn't mean Damon won't open up to Andie.

"It's this girl and Damon taking a bubble bath together, drinking wine by candlelight," Somerhalder teases of an upcoming scene. "Damon has this sort of, not cathartic breakdown, but he says to her the way he's feeling. It's kind of tragic that the only way he can express himself to anyone is if he puts them under his compulsion, where they're actually his sort of droids, if you will."

We know of a few TV Fanatic readers that wouldn't mind being Damon's droids, right, ladies?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
